Its not exactly good news is it.

Come on you have to laugh at it. Shows how older generations can't take a joke. They make out they were "forced" to do it, but they did it willingly. How can you be forced to do stuff like that. Just say no. The dog food eating was because she was drunk and it her own fault. I'm sure some of you have done far worse things when drunk...

Why is it no joke? It's not the first time the Nazi's have been used for a laugh. TV series 'allo 'allo did it and Father Ted has. Comedians have used nazi's as a joke for a long time. Do you find that offensive?

Just curious.

Being born and raised in Germany, yes i find it offensive. What happened when the Nazis were in power was a lot of horrible and wrong things, and ridiculing just doesnt help to raise awareness amongst the younger generatiosn of what actually happened, how many people died.
Also i think this gives a bad image of the UK in the world.

Thast just my personal opinion and i think we are going to far of topic here...

Yeh sorry I just wondered.

Back on topic. With A levels it's tempting to pin point around something but i'd recommend keeping as many options as open as possible. That way if you find out the subject you loved in fact isn't what you like, you can still change.

A-Levels

Maths
Further maths
Computing (Don't call it IT lol)
Economics (at AS only)

And I'm doing maths at reading uni


Note that i didn't do physics and although they do help each other you don't have to be a physicist to do maths and vice versa. Infact at higher levels they are more separate. As maths is so wide economics and computing overlap just as much.

Also, Widdows: we may end up going to the same uni at the same time! I might go to Cambridge. Are you planning on taking a gap year?

It would be awesome if we ended up at the same uni lol. I'd love to go to Oxford or Cambridge. I'm almost definitely taking a gap year so that I can raise some funds by working my socks off before I get in huge debt lol Rolling Eyes

Widds: depending on what you apply for, taking a gap year might actually be discouraged.

Subjects like maths or languages tend to fade quickly without practice, so it's better to go straight into uni rather than taking a year out. Some unis aren't so fussed, but Oxbridge definitely discourage it.

Yeah I suppose, I'm probably looking to take a science degree, something to do with chemistry or biology as I've decided I'll be taking those at A level, so would that be another subject where you shouldn't take a year out? Oh and cheers for all the advice you lot.

I've just started Year 13 and for university I'm applying to do Maths at Cambridge, York, Durham, Nottingham and Southampton, in that order of preference. I'm expecting to get 3 As (Maths, Further Maths, Physics. I might get an A in Politics as well but I dunno) but I'm still not convinced I'll get offers from Cambridge, York or Durham.

for Cambridge i would of thought they would ask you for 4 A's but i'm not sure on that. They will ask you to do STEP though and probably want a one in papers 2 and 3.

STEP papers are 3 hours long and by no means easy. There a lot harder then A level and you will need to put time in practising the papers if you plan on passing let alone getting a 1 (STEP goes S, 1, 2, 3, F).

Don't let me put you off though lol.

Well Widdows, my favourites to apply are Cambridge or Imperial College. I'll be taking a gap year almost definitely, somewhere that I can speak Spanish in order to become fluent. My brother went to Latin America, he's practically fluent now. I'll probably have missed a year of Spanish by the time I get that far though, although it depends on whether or not I end up doing the weird beyond-A-level course that my school offers for fast track students who want to continue past year 12...

Anyway, it would definitely be great to go to the same uni as you! Here's hoping we do!

Don't quote me on this (how ironic) but I think they only require a 2 if you have 4 As. And a 2 is only about 40% isn't it?

I applied for Cambridge,St Andrews, York, Surrey, Kings College London.
Got an offer for all of them except Cambridge(where i did well on the interview but dismally on the TSA mainly due to language difficulties).
Unis apprecaite though if you take more than just 3 A2 levels.

That's good for me, I'll certainly have a minimum of 4 A2's. Probably 5. And the best part is, I get one of them with a year's less work technically, since I'll do my Spanish A2 next year.
